Windfarm Map Offers Detailed View of Operational Windfarms in the US

Posted on June 26, 2012


Recently released by Industrial Info, a wall map showing a detailed view of windfarms across the US will let lawmakers, consumers, and environmental enthusiasts know the scope and impact of the wind-energy industry.  MarketMAPS looks at this map and how the information contained in it can change our future. 

If the past has taught us anything, it’s that the discussion of alternative energy and ‘green’ energy is not leaving the public conscience.  It’s definitely going to be a topic of discussion in the upcoming election this year, and may be for further elections to come.  Industrial Info’s recently released 6th Edition United States Wind Power Industry Wall Map provides a detailed view of the 614 operational windfarms in theU.S., representing more than 46,500 megawatts (MW) of capacity (an increase of 17% from 2011).

In addition to operational windfarms, the map also shows 76 windfarms under construction and more than 400 windfarms in the advanced and early planning stages. According to Industrial Info, the windfarms under construction will add an additional 9,678 MW of power to the grid when completed, while those in the planning stages represent more than 87,000 MW of potential additional capacity.  The map provides visual information aboutU.S.windfarm locations, and also provides detailed information, including farm owner, farm name, startup date, number of turbines, region, designed capacity, model of turbines, and much more.  Using this map, you can identify and even contact the windfarm nearest to you.

While the wind power sector remains a relatively new and developing form of renewable energy, many facilities have been in place for several years and are in need of after-market services. By 2006, more than 10,000 MW of wind power was installed in theU.S.This increased to 15,000 MW by the end of 2007 and 25,000 MW by the end of 2008.

With maps like these, scientists, lawmakers, and many others will be able to easily keep track of individual wind-energy farms using the visual simplicity of a map.  Maps help us better track, identify, and view the details of the things that interest us, whether they are state borders, political districts, US highways, or demographic trends across the country.  MarketMAPS has over 25 years of experience supplying businesses and consumers with the maps that allow them to better view and analyze their areas of interest.  Our maps have been used to help educate in the classroom, as home décor, and to help businesses plan delivery routes, profile customers, and design sales territories with precision.  With the most up-to-date data available, you can count on our maps for accuracy and visual appeal.
